The building consulting experts at EC2 provide indoor air quality (IAQ) testing services for both new construction and existing buildings to ensure building occupants are breathing healthy air.


Earlier this month the Chicago Tribune published an article about actress and green activist, Mariel Hemingway’s visit to the recently opened Healthy Child Healthy World (HCHW) show house in Illinois.  Hemingway’s visit was to promote the HCHW focus on improving indoor air quality and health related changes that can be made in today’s modern homes.


The article discussed Hemingway’s passion for green living by utilizing low volatile organic compound (VOC) paints, organic products and detoxifying people’s homes.   This growing wave of people striving to live in healthy homes has been witnessed firsthand by Ed Chambers, President of EC2, Inc., a leading environmental and building science consulting service provider.


“Illinois, and the Chicago area in particular, have been leading the way in green buildings and healthy indoor environments,” reported Mr. Chambers.  “Chicago was one of the first cities to embrace the U.S. Green Building Council’s (USGBC) LEED® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) program and is home to more LEED-certified green buildings than any other city.  At EC2 we are regularly called upon by businesses and homeowners across Illinois to conduct IAQ and environmental audits of properties.  This helps to ensure building occupants are being exposed to healthy air and EC2 provides suggestions on what could be done to further improve the indoor environment.”


Environmental professionals like the experts at EC2 help property and business owners provide healthy indoor environments and to return buildings to healthy conditions quickly and efficiently following floods and other disasters.  With over 5,000 IAQ investigations successfully resolved, Ed Chambers and his team of environmental and building sciences consultants are experts at identifying problems and finding viable solutions.
